I agree with you here, but I think maybe some people forget that Morgan is only 5 months old. Yes, it would be better to let him sleep in the bedroom, and the OP knows that, it's just not possible. That doesn't make her a bad owner - she still exercises, trains, and gives lots of attention to her puppy every day, which is more than what many people who don't use crates do. Meanwhile, my dog is right now out of her crate, but she's been sleeping on her "spot" on my couch for the past 3 hours, only getting up once or twice for a drink or to scratch. And this is my day off, when I'm home with her.
